Transgender Woman 'woke Up On Male Hospital Ward' After Routine Knee Surgery



A transgender woman woke up on a male ward after routine knee surgery, a new report has revealed.

The study found that LGBT+ women face "blatant discrimination" and a "surprising level of ignorance" in the healthcare system.

It highlights numerous cases where sexual minority women (SMW) experienced difficulties at the hands of medics and administrators.

In one case, a respondent to the research said: “In 2008 I had knee surgery and woke up on a male ward—clearly they had looked at my face and overruled my notes.”


Ignorance and discrimination continue to this day, the report , published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health found.

Others said same-sex partners were not accepted by health service workers.
